This salad does not have sweetener in the sauce, so what you get is the burst of sweet raisin against the saltiness of the mayonnaise. It's good! Different than other carrot salads I've tired, but I like this one just as well. I used Hellman's lowfat mayo.
Jane this is a very nice and simple salad to make and love the sweetness the raisins give it. However, I halved the recipe and there was barely enough for just the 2 of us. Thanks
